David Beckham Gets a New Tattoo He May Live to Regret

Well, isn't that just great. David Beckham had "Victoria" tattooed across his right hand, officially making him not only one of the best looking husbands on the planet, but also one of the most devoted.

I mean, this dude must really want the world to know that he only has eyes for his wife and has no intention of ever leaving her side; otherwise, he wouldn't want a permanent reminder of the vows he took written all over his hand, right?

(Sigh. I wonder if she has any idea how lucky she is?)

Aww. What an amazing guy. But you gotta admit -- getting a huge name tattoo is kind of a risky move, even if you think your marriage is rock solid. (Come on -- they're a Hollywood/London couple. Anything's possible.)

Some tattoos just really aren't a wise idea no matter how you look at them, and those featuring names are definitely at the top of the list. They're like a jinx or something. (Unless it's the name of your children or someone who has passed on and the tattoo is in honor of them. That's different.)

Back when I was in college, I can remember seriously considering having my sorority letters (Kappa Kappa Gamma) inked on my ankle. And yeah, it would've looked pretty cool -- for about four years. But now that I'm a 36-year-old mom, I'd hate to look down at my leg and see a permanent reminder of my drunken frat-party-goin' days staring back up at me. (Let's face it, I wasn't always this classy.)

And you know what other types of tattoos are as stupid as stupid gets? Sunflowers. Or fish. Or dolphins. Or peace signs. Or anything you think is remotely awesome when you're around the age of 18. I can't tell you how many friends I have who regret their very first tattoos -- because they're of things that really hold no significance at this point in their lives.

Hopefully for Becks, he and Victoria will live happily ever after and grow old together and all that good stuff. But if they don't? Well, I guess he could always try and disguise that tattoo with a huge soccer ball.

Would you ever get a tattoo of someone's name?
